Denmark had on Thursday suspended AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine after several cases of blood clots were reported amongst those who received the jab.

A Danish person was one of the people who experienced the clot although the authority did not confirm whether there was a link between the Oxford University developed vaccine and the blood clots. As a result, the country has stopped using the vaccine for 14 days as it investigates.

Thailand’s Prime Minister, Prayut Chan-o-cha, cancelled plans to publicly get the AstraZeneca as the country also delayed the roll-outs plans.

“When there is an adverse event, we don’t need to be in rush,” said Piyasakol Sakolsatayadorn who is a senior member of the nation’s vaccination committee.

According to the European Medicines Agency, the number of thromboembolic cases on Monday amongst individuals that got vaccinated was not higher than in the general population.

“Both we and the Danish Medicines Agency have to respond to reports of possible serious side-effects, both from Denmark and other European countries,” the Danish Health Authority’s director  Soren Brostrom said in a statement.
